You bet there is.

But the end of the day this is NOT

This is about a thuggish,
criminal government literally
putting its boots on the neck
of its citizens.

Actually, the people in

​‘They want their war and they want it now!’

​‘They want their war and they want it now!’ | Global politics | Scoop.it
If you are playing a game of chess, and the next moves you are considering all inexorably lead to your king falling into checkmate, then you have only two options: you either topple your king and graciously accept defeat, or…
Enrique Ferro's insight:

Clearly, we all live in very dangerous times.

США продолжают наносить удары по Ираку, где обширная территория страны перешла под контроль экстремистов. К операции может присоединиться и Великобритания. Однако недавний опрос жителей европейских стран выявил немалую степень поддержки группировки «Исламское государство» в ЕС.
